Superstar Carrie Underwood brought her mom, Carole, onstage at Thursday night’s (October 24) Cry Pretty Tour 360 stop in Tulsa, Oklahoma, leaving fans with a memory they won’t soon forget.

All tour long, the native of nearby Checotah has been inviting fans from the crowd to sing along with “The Champion,” the Platinum certified hit which features a rap verse from hip hop star Ludacris. But with her family so close by, Underwood couldn’t resist starting a little family tradition.

“She has never sang in front of a ton of people like this before, so when she gets on this stage, you guys better give her all your love and all the support,” Underwood told the crowd just before introducing her mother to the stage, according to Tulsa World.

Sporting leather jeans and a shimmering sweater blouse, Carole certainly looked the part — and like her daughter said on Instagram after the show, she nailed the big moment. Strutting to center stage to meet Underwood face to face, Carole unleashed her inner rapper without hesitation … as her little girl encouraged her the whole way. They probably weren’t rapping back in the day, but it seemed like a small hint at what Underwood’s childhood might have been like.

“Who knew Mom could rap?!,” Underwood wrote, adding #MyMomsCoolerThanYourMom.

Underwood’s Cry Pretty Tour 360 continues on with just a handful of shows left, wrapping October 31 in Detroit, Michigan. Then it’s on to the CMA Awards, where she’s co-host alongside Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton.
